We're bringing my family farm back to life. My parents farmed here until the 1980's, but couldn't make a profit with corn and soybeans. My husband, Nate, and I moved home in 2014, and started turning the fields into pastures. Today, we run Nightfall Farm, raise animals with respect, and sell pasture-raised meat locally. Come wander the 125 acres of woods, wetlands, and farm. Check out the animals in our pastures, and walk along the Muscatatuck River. Enjoy a quiet fire. Hear the roar of frogs calling in Spring. Chase fireflies. Behold a family farm coming back to life.

Clean, cozy cabin!
We had a wonderful time at Nightfall Farm in the Sunrise Cabin! Such friendly folks! The cabin and composting toilet were nice and clean. The cabin is a lovely, cozy space with big windows and a view of, yes, the east - we had a great sunrise. Though the cabin is within shouting distance of the house, it was cleverly arranged to feel very secluded. We felt really good about staying at Nightfall Farm - it felt safe, and it felt great to support these farmers. They are doing some really neat things with their land, like restoring wetlands and prairies, taking care of their soil, and adding perennial crops/tree crops. We would definitely stay there again!

100% would go back!
I was looking for a place to disconnect and relax and this was exactly what we needed. We loved getting to see the sheep and walk the trails or just lay in bed with the windows open to listen to the nature sounds. Already can't wait to be able to go back.

Sleeping with the Sheep
My husband and I loved our stay! Our little shelter was nice and we were right next to some adorable sheep. It was surprisingly pleasant going to bed with sheep bleating, and we loved taking a break from city sounds for a night. We took a farm tour & my husband is now convinced he’s ready for farm life. Liz was super welcoming and gave us so much insight into her day-to-day. We can’t wait to come back!

The Sunrise Cabin was a lovely stay! They're great hosts and set us up to weather the cold nights (including a heated blanket). And the cabin lives up to the sunrise name!

Cool Farm!
This was one of our favorite stops of the trip. We loved the farm atmosphere, and it was so cool to wake up and see sheep right next door. The owners were super nice and accommodating and spent lots of time telling my daughter about the sheep, which was above and beyond. We hope to come back again.

Staying here was perfect for a peaceful place to sleep while on a long road trip. The hosts were very welcoming and walking around the farm was great. I was also treated to a showing of hundreds of fireflies lighting up the area around the shelter as the sun went down

This campsite was exactly what we needed - a quiet escape! Liz was welcoming and informative. We loved the private camping area, nearby hiking trail, and fuzzy chick neighbors. What a wonderful hidden gem, not too far from the interstate. Can't wait to have the opportunity to return!

Perfect !
I really can’t say enough about how wonderful our stay was. The shelter was charming and had enough for us all to hang hammocks ( myself and 3 kids !) the Shelter is placed where you feel completely private and peaceful. But also close enough it’s easy to Unload the car and get water etc. the farm itself is wonderful. Liz and Nate are amazing humans doing wonderful ( and hard!) and work. They were so patient with all our many questions and so kind. The animals are all So beautiful and healthy and the countryside is peaceful and full of birds and and roads and frogs and bunnies and we saw a bald eagle - all around a truly wonderful experience.

Our hosts were great! Had a relaxing and quiet evening camping. Enjoyed seeing the animals on the farm, taking a hike on the trail near the property, and meeting their pets who were all super friendly. Will definitely be back!

So much love for this "off the beaten path" farm.. Liz welcomed us graciously, showed us to the shelter, facilities, and water source. then gave us an impromptu tour of the farm and animals and answered my endless string of questions without any sense of urgency to get to, what I imagine, is her endless list of chores! They were so kind and all too accommodating! <3 <3

My sister and I stayed at Nightfall Farm on our way to and from Red River Gorge (from Chicago) and it was the PERFECT stopping off point near enough to the highway but tucked away in peaceful lovely farmland area. Liz and Nate were incredibly welcoming and accommodating. Our first night we arrived quite late so they made us a very helpful guided video to make sure we could find our way without issue. We decided we'd like to come back on our way back to Chicago but the Sunrise Shelter was already booked, so Liz and Nate offered another space that was not yet listed to accommodate us. It was totally private and had everything we needed. We really enjoyed our stay and can't wait to visit again some time!

Worth the revisit
I am a big fan of the Sunrise Shelter - I stopped by again on this year's trip through Indiana. The shelter was just the breath of secluded fresh air I needed out of my normal city life. Autumn was just beginning on the farm, and the cool night air was amazing (and the colors of the sunrise were fantastic). Really appreciated the outdoor shower in the warm day!

Pleasant farm with great shelter!
This place was great! Exploring the farm reminded me of pleasant memories I had on my grandparents' farm. The shelter was extremely beneficial since it rained overnight, so this spot is great in all types of weather. Plus the hosts (and dogs!) are super friendly.

Great camping spot
We pitched our tent in the shelter and had a great fall camping trip. Liz and Nate were very welcoming, as were their friendly dogs. Would definitely recommend!

Nightfall's forest is alive!
Nightfall is a working farm, so there are animals of all varieties, but because of the way Liz and Nate are cultivating nutritious soils, there are so many insects and they make a lot of noise. It took some getting used to, but it was one of the lovelier aspects of the trip. In addition to that, I got to enjoy time by the fire, stargazing in a very low light-pollution area, and farm fresh eggs. 10/10, would visit again.

Sunrise shelter was a fantastic place to get away & relax with nature. We loved being surrounded by lush green forest, a clear night sky & waking up with the birds. I'd definitely check out this spot again! Big thanks to the hosts for the hospitality!

Simply amazing
I highly recommend the sunrise shelter on Nightfall Farm. My partner and I were warmly greeted by Liz, Nate, and their very friendly dogs. The site was well-equipped with a compost toilet, potable water, a designated parking spot, and a campfire! The shelter was private and spacious. We took a tour of the farm and learned so much about what it takes to raise animals sustainably. And after checking out, we drove up to Upland's Columbus Pump House and were delighted to find Nightfall's pasture-raised chicken on the menu! We'd recommend the sunrise shelter to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway.

We had an incredible stay at Sunrise Shelter! The directions were perfect and Liz and Nate were amazing hosts. Even though the weather was a bit of a bummer, we stayed nice and dry under the shelter for a relaxing and chill weekend. We will be back!
